    Frankenstein re-do of a neat old 20 inch western flyer that my nephew loves as a gift for him. Made it rideable for his size by upgrading to a parts pile triple tree front fork, modern larger cranket , oddjob supplied vintage loaf seat , old apes , white rims, and a fresh set of whitewalls. Enjoyed participating and hope ya dig it ! IMG_20200113_162525934~2.jpg

    I really like what you did with this build, Ben. The straight up apes coming off the long straight fork legs ties in perfectly. And you made that loaf seat look good on there! Whitewalls to top it off on a rat-ina frame. Well done!:thumbsup:

    Every kid should have a cool uncle like you. You put the parts in the right place, and your heart's in the right place. Well done.
